Wow, your venue is beautiful!

The gallery has pictures of tables dressed in white and green, which look nice. However,  I could totally see you using brown chair covers with green ties.  From what I can tell from the pictures, it looks as though there are already shades of brown in the walls and accents, so I think your colors would work.

i love your venue! i agree with your sil, the blue ceiling is soooo beautiful, i don’t know if i’d want to add such a bright color to take away from it.

but how much do you love lime? i know if someone told me not to use pink…. i just wouldn’t be ok with it!

I don’t see how it would be a problem. Go with what you want.

I don’t know, the venue is lovely on its own, but if you want color, go for it. Both brown and green can be pulled from the environment, so it wouldn’t be a huge stretch. I wouldn’t do hot pink in there or anything, but your colors would work. Also, i noticed a bit of deep turquoise in the decor – ever think about that?

I agree with most of what people have already said – your venue is beautiful but I do not think those colors would detract – you can definitely use them to enhance it’s beauty.  Plus, it’s your wedding – go for it!

I think the place is lovely, but i think your colors, both the brown and the green, would look fine there, it already has shades of brown in the decor, so tech. you would only be adding one color green. go for it it’s your wedding.

I am doing a chocolate brown and a fern green (more olive than lime).  There are a TON of lime green flowers.  I wish I had gone more lime than olive.

I don’t see how it would take away from that venue, it is so gorgeous and unique that I don’t think a little color will take away from it. Go for it!

Gorgeous venue…I would do anything too loud that would clash with the already beautiful decor.  Maybe just use the lime as an accent…Brown and lime on your cake…lime ribbons on your flowers…that kind of thing.

 

Good luck!

I think using green as an accent (like having green orchids in the centerpieces, etc) as opposed to for major stuff like tableclothes, etc, would be nice with that room.

It all depends on how much lime you want to add.  You don’t have to carry your theme to a tee.  My colors are also brown and green and my reception has lots of green.  I’m only adding a bit to accentuate it and doing so in the form of flowers (which will be mixed with white), and as added backs to the table numbers.  I am working within the building to bring out the color without going over board.  And the main color will be brown.

At the end of the day, it’s your day and not your s-i-ls so if you really want lime, then go for it.  GL.
